Why?  Honestly, I don't understand.  You do understand our negative
responses to weren't meant as a personal attack??  I certainly
consider both positive and negative comments about books (or whatever)
to be useful, especially when they come from from people (like you!)
whose opinion I respect or when they give an illuminating argument.
And, in fact, even when they don't even deign to give any reasons --
since that may tell you something in itself ;-)

Sorry for ticking, but certainly not sorry for expressing an opinion.
